A clinical death or having an out of body experience while reviewing 2 months worth of a Hydro One bill for $4595.47 is possible. I think I had one.
I began to smile and then laugh uncontrollably at the obvious mistake that quickly subsided while speaking to "Mark", a Hydro One troubleshooter. He agreed that it seemed "rather high" and started asking me about my usage. My usage? I live in a single dwelling, a house, a standard home while admitting that I may crack a window for fresh air from time to time.
It was agreed that I would be referred to “Billings” for a further consult and who would contact me to cypher through it further.“Laurie” called to review my bill suggesting that although it seemed a "bit" excessive, all appeared to be correct from where she could see.(I assure you, she was not seeing my smart meter much less, had been to my home).
I do confess, I was in the middle of building at that time. There were workers wielding battery pack drills, there was a table saw, a tool compressor used when required, and as much as it pains me to admit, there was a small coil heater working on and off to keep the painters happy.
Consuming the equivalent of $2297.73 in electricity in one month would serve to supply enough energy to power an inefficient low income 16 Unit Townhouse... with a Community Hall.
As I begin to see me tied to the tracks of an oncoming freight train; “I will send you some literature and a questionnaire for you to conduct that may help decipher some of your usage, sir. If after we receive it and we find that your consumption is questionable, we will send someone to check and read your meter.” Really? Could we not maybe save a step here? I’m quite certain that you’ll be sending someone to see that I don’t have a Regional Prison facility planted on my property.
“Laurie, what if your broken meter reading matches and supports the erroneous readings on my bill”?“Well sir, we can only determine that once we’ve sent someone out to check”.
Ontarians, we have a problem.
way to go
